MUSE/IQUE: ‘America’s Cultural Renaissance of 1974’
March 15, 2024 through March 17, 2024
Mark Taper Forum
MUSE/IQUE makes its Mark Taper Forum debut with Magic Hour in Los Angeles: America’s Cultural Renaissance of 1974! 1974 in Los Angeles was, in a word, magic. At a time when Americans began breaking free from post-war conformity, the city that outsiders once considered glitzy and superficial emerged as the unlikely cultural epicenter for exponential creativity and blossoming self-expression. Not only did groundbreaking works of art from film, television, and theatre spring forth from this “magic hour”, but so did the idea that it is often art and pop culture that lead our way forward. Join MUSE/IQUE and CTG:FWD as we celebrate the creative heavy-hitters who transformed our city and the year that crowned Los Angeles the cultural capital of the world. Curated and led by MUSE/IQUE Artistic & Music Director Rachael Worby, featuring spectacular vocalists Javier AlmarázLaVance ColleyRachel Gonzalez, and The DC6 Singers Collective, the soaring MUSE/IQUE orchestra bringing to life the music of Stevie WonderJerry GoldsmithLos LobosJoni MitchellThe Eagles, and a look back at the plays and artists who graced the stage of the Mark Taper Forum in 1974 from award-winning actor Glynn Turman!
